The weatherman has been predicting precipitation over the next couple of days for Southern Ontario. In the Ottawa area, we might have freezing rain and we will likely have about 10 centimetres (or more) of snow. Oh well - it is January after all. And snow is just one of those facts of winter. For instance, this is a picture of me (on the right) and a friend, sitting on a great pile of snow, many many years ago (circa 1958?) on a winter afternoon. It was probably one of those winters when people were saying things like, "the snow was so high, it reached the roof-tops". (Apparently, that is happening in Alaska this year).
I did this painting, which is now in the collection of my friend Ronna, based on another winter photograph from about the same time period as the one above. I am on the right, my sister Marilyn is in the middle and a friend is on the left. I might even be wearing the same snowsuit as above. I remember those awful snowsuits - they had felt or something inside and would get soaking wet. Does anyone else remember them?
Enjoy the coming snow (if you are in the area) and stay safe if you are driving.
